Long Island Iced Tea

OK, the summers are here, the temperatures are rising fast and we need constant amount of fluid in our system... (and by fluid I mean - stuff which make us more fluid... mellow down man)...

So here's the first shot...

Type: Cocktail Drink, Alcoholic
Serving Dish: High Glass

Long Island Iced Tea...
(serving for 1)
(Picture for reference only, the picture has ice cubes instead of crushed ice)

Stuff you will need:
  • 2 tea spoon vodka
  • 2 tea spoon gin
  • 2 tea spoon gold rum
  • 2 tea spoon gold tequila
  • 2 tea spoon triple sec (its an orange-flavoured liqeur)
  • 20ml (freshly squeezed is good) lemon juice
  • 20ml (freshly squeezed is good) orange juice
  • 1 tea spoon sugar syrup
  • crushed ice
  • cola
Stuff to make it look good:
  • lemon slice

Mixing the stuff together:
Actually here, all you do is mix it all together... best if you have a cocktail shaker:
  • Pour the vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, lemon juice, orange juice, sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker.
  • Add the crushed ice and shake well.
  • Fill a highball glass half full with crushed ice. Strain over the mixture, then top up with the cola.
  • To make it look good while serving it, just garnish the glass with a slice of lemon.

OK, I made the thing and downed it... I must tell you, holding the bottles of vodka, gin, rum and tequila in my hand, I was wondering - "what the heck, just have these instead - save the time..."

But after it was made, and after I sipped it down... This was infact quite nice... I would recommend it to all those who are sitting out in the sun on a lazy Saturday afternoon... Down this and get a little more lazy!!!
